Speech by Swami Omkarananda in April 1986




The world is nothing but an illusion. It emerges all of a sudden. Even as a dream comes into being all of a sudden. Out of nothing it rises. But without the truth as it's background it cannot come into existence. There must be a person behind, the Reality is always there at the background. This person, this Reality, is Existence. Against the background of the film screen there appears the world, the life. All the projected pictures of the movie the television the video appears so real while they are being projected. On the screen itself there is nothing. The screen is always the same. The projected pictures come and go.
